Abstract

Minimally invasive and function-preserving pancreatectomy would be the ideal approach for benign and borderline malignant tumors of the pancreas. Total pancreatectomy can be indicated for the main duct type of intraductal papillary mucin-producing tumor (IPMT) to achieve radical resection. Recently, several studies advocating total pancreatectomy in IPMT have been published, but they are all believed to be done by conventional laparotomy. Herein, we report a case of a 72-year-old female patient who successfully underwent laparoscopic- assisted total pancreatectomy with the spleen and pylorus preserved in borderline malignant main duct type IPMT. A marginal ulcer around the duodenojejunostomy was developed, but managed by a proton-pump inhibitor. She was discharged 20 days after surgery. She was followed for more than 2 years without evidence of tumor recurrence. Her blood sugar level was well controlled by insulin pump therapy and image study showed well-preserved spleen function.
